Prospective Master Students

IIT Delhi senate has recently approved the MTech programme in Machine Intelligence & Data Science (MINDS) offered by ScAI. The MTech in MINDS will be a flagship educational programme for the ScAI at IIT Delhi, and is expected to begin in July 2022.

MTech in MINDS is planned as an industry-sponsored programme. The students will be expected to work on industry-relevant AI problems, since they will be co-advised by an IIT Delhi faculty member and a researcher from the sponsoring company. The MINDS curriculum will include graduate-level courses in core AI technologies like deep learning and data science, application-oriented courses like computer vision and natural language processing, and also fundamental courses on mathematics underlying modern AI technologies. The students who join the MINDS program will have to complete a set of core courses, bridge core courses, program electives, and a project. These courses could be from course buckets such as mathematics, learning, data science, and applications.

In the long run, ScAI also envisions starting an Executive Masters programme taught primarily via evening and weekend classes. This programme will cater to the growing global demand by training industry professionals in modern AI techniques. Please check back this space later for any updates.


Four Year B.Tech. / B.E. Degree (first class) or any equivalent degree (e.g., B.S. from a foreign university, and M.Sc., MCA, or other Master’s degrees done as part of a 3+2 model) from any Engineering or Science discipline. A valid GATE score would be needed where such a requirement is not waived, such as students from an IIT with a CGPA exceeding a threshold. Strong interest and background in computational mathematics and programming are preferred.
